History

The initiative behind the Novembertagungen began in 1990 in Lambrecht. Since then, each year the Novembertagung has taken place in operation with a different university. Below you can find the dates of all Novembertagungen, including theme, invited speakers, organizers and a link to the conference webpage (if any).
